Cloud Web Hosting Description

What is cloud hosting actually? The word 'cloud' appears to be quite trendy in today's computing, Internet and hosting parlance. Still, only a few in fact are familiar with what cloud hosting is. Perhaps it is a good idea to educate yourself about cloud hosting services. To make a quite long tale brief, we will first disclose to you what cloud hosting is not.

1. Cloud Hosting is Not Confined to a Remote Disk Storage Exclusively.

1. Supplying a remote disk storage service, which comprises one single disk storage device for all customers, does not turn any specific web hosting service provider into an authentic cloud hosting distributor.

The cPanel hosting corporations call the ability to provide remote data storage solutions a cloud hosting service. Up to now there is nothing bad about the cloud labeling, but... we are discussing hosting services, not remote data storage solutions for personal or business purposes. There's always one "but", isn't there? It's not sufficient to call a shared hosting service, based on a single-server hosting platform, just like cPanel, a "cloud hosting" service. That's because the remaining constituents of the entire hosting platform must be operating in exactly the same manner - this does not relate solely to the remote file storage. The rest of the services involved in the whole web hosting process also need to be remote, isolated and "clouded". And that's quite difficult. A very meager number of web hosting firms can really attain it.

2. It Encompasses Domain Names, Mail Aliases, Databases, FTPs, Hosting CPs, and so on.

Cloud hosting is not confined to a remote data storage exclusively. We are discussing a hosting service, serving many domain names, online portals, mail accounts, etc., are we not?

To dub a web hosting service a "cloud hosting" one needs a lot more than supplying only remote file storage mounts (or perchance servers). The mail server(s) must be devoted exclusively to the mail related services. Doing nothing different than these given assignments. There might be just one single or perhaps an entire bundle of mail servers, determined by the total server load produced. To have an actual cloud hosting service, the remote database servers should be operating as one, irrespective of their actual quantity. Carrying out nothing different. The same goes for the customers' Control Panels, the FTP, and so on.

3. There are Cloud Domain Name Servers (DNSs) as well.

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of a genuine cloud hosting corporation will support multiple server farm locations on multiple continents.

Here's an instance of a Domain Name Server of an authentic cloud hosting distributor:


dns1.triumphhosting.com

dns2.triumphhosting.com


If such a DNS is offered by your hosting company, it's not a guarantee that there is a cloud web hosting platform in use, but you can absolutely be convinced when you spot a DNS such as the one beneath:


dns658.hostgator.com

dns659.hostgator.com


that there isn't any cloud web hosting service. This sort of Domain Name Server simply reveals that the hosting platform in use is one-server based. Perhaps it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-server hosting platform and holds a market share of more than 98%. In cPanel's case, one single physical machine tackles all hosting services (web, electronic mail, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, CP(s), web site files, and so on).

Remote File Storage - The Perverted Interpretation of Cloud Hosting.

So, a cloud hosting service is not restricted only to a remote disk storage service, as plenty of hosting firms wish it was. Unluckily for them, if that was the case, the majority of the file web hosting companies would have been categorized as cloud web hosting ones long ago! They are not referred to as such, as they plainly distribute file hosting services, not cloud hosting solutions. The file web hosting platform appears really quite simple, in comparison with the web hosting platform. The remote data storage platform is not a cloud web hosting platform. It cannot be, since it's just one small fragment of the whole cloud hosting platform. There's plenty more to be found in the cloud hosting platform: the Control Panel cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the Domain Name Server cloud, the File Transfer Protocol cloud, the e-mail cloud and... in the not too distant future, maybe a bunch of brand new clouds we currently are not informed about will come up out of the blue.
